@sampoder1🚢 Last week, my Hack Club ran ⚡Maker Week⚡. Which put simply was Hack Club for an entire week! We had a Discovery Zone on Monday morning (a series of generative art / visual displays), then every lunchtime we ran a workshop (such as the Kahoot & Kaboom workshops as well as a special science workshop) and to wrap it all up we had an evening hackathon called Maker Night. It was a ton of fun and hopefully we attracted some awesome new Hack Club members!
@J_cordz7+Today I learned more on how to work with VScode! :vsc: I didn't knew :thinking: it was possible to open a terminal :macintosh-stcicker: on it! I tried as well to open the neofetch command and Vim :vim: on it and my Splatter Paint 🎨 project files! Today I also worked again on details for two new Hack Club :hack-club: PR! :pr: The first one is to add Scrapbook to the GitHub :github: README and the second is my Workshop translation guide! :mexicoparrot: All of this are from ideas talked with @jessicard yesterday, thanks a lot for guiding me and reviewing my work! :yay: Lastly for today, I kept studying for my Biology Exam! 🦠 🔬
@msw1today was hot. put in A/Cs at home & office + drew some sketches
@ced0some covid goin' round HQ, so work on the Game Lab handheld console continues from home :salute:
wired up those buttons yesterday :) I'm still not clearing the screen though :tw_sweat_smile: so it's also a drawing program for making abstract art!
:mask-parrot:stay well hack clubbers, and join #nemea to help us get this console in the hands of any hack clubber who builds something cool with gamelab :)@J_cordz7+Today I managed to complete my new 🥮 feature of Splatter Paint 🎨! Now the second type of path looks more like a brush !🖌️ To do this I worked with mouse vectors :cursor-pointer::this-toitle:
Also here's a picture of a cat I saw earlier today.
I did it a few days ago as you can see it on my Scrapbook posts, but I was told to ship this as well! This features a custom background with a texture, gradients, the application of elements like :before and :after , some cool borders and a great animation! From this I learned how to get better at design and with CSS.
To all of this I'm attaching some pictures 📸 of the projects and the links! 🔗 🌐
That's all for today, feel free to ⭐ any of the projects or follow me if you like and see y'all later with the next Ship!! Wahoo!
@J_cordz7+Today I added a small new thing to Splatter Paint! 🎨 As well I had some cool :cooll-dino::blob-cool: conversations on the slack :slack: like every day :D this time about plants with @ced and others! Here's some pictures of the evening 🌆. Also I downloaded LDtk, which is a 2D Level Design Toolkit! 🎮 I'm also working on a ASCII project about frogs/amphibians. 🐸 Sadly :sadge: I still couldn't went to the movies 🍿 to watch Dr. Strange :drstrange: so I'll have to wait more and my ISP is now blocking Vercel :vercel: even with 184.108.40.206 and others DNS Providers I tried, so I will be setting up a project of my own to try to solve this and as well use @BenjaminSmith server with Outline VPN! 🌐 :wireguard:
@benjamin0Makin’ some abstract art with my broken polygon assembly algorithm
@sporeball0i'll let "e" save images now. just for a treat
@J_cordz7+Today I contributed to the GitHub :github: 2022 Graduation 🎓 repo! :quad_parrot: I helped to translate content to Spanish! :mexicoparrot::merge: This was very cool :cooll-dino: and I'm glad I was able to help! Now I just need to work on my PR to get submitted as a graduating student! :pullrequest: The holographic collection card 👀 they're giving as a gift 🎁 looks awesome! And while I finish the documentation 📜 💻 for my Splatter Paint 🎨 project, I'll start working with the Sound🎵 Galaxy 🌌 workshop! :hack-club: Here's as well a picture 📸 of the sunset. 🌆
@msw1saw some cool natural park service style artwork & decided to make some of my own
@J_cordz7+Today I had my Biology exam 🧬 🔬 🦠 and tomorrow is finally Friday! :tw_spiral_calendar_pad: Today as well I learned how website 🕸️ webrings works and how to make a basic one with HTML/CSS, also I worked on new features for Splatter Paint! This involves the use of z-index to add new interesting things, I also added some turtle :toitle::toitle-in-a-tent::toitle-as-a-hack-clubber: emojis to the Club's :hack-club: slack as well! :slack:
@ced0after going off of the deep end, blaming Set's hashing algorithms for the crazy art that I accidentally generated and then finally realizing it was my fault all along, I went ahead and made a visualization of why my "generate a big megahexagon out of 'lil hexes" algorithm was
1. grossly inefficent
2. produced the art that it did
1. visits hexes that it's already considered all of the neighbors of
2. does so in a consistent counter-clockwise pattern
(starting at 90 degrees and going back)
(on both the micro and macro level)
the code for it was really cute though lol so can you really blame me?
and look how much cool art I got out of it!
talk about going off the deep end ...
this also seems like one big metaphor for me being grossly inefficient at doing the things that I set out to do, but making lots of cool art along the way.
@J_cordz7+This is probably going to be my last post about the Splatter Paint Canvas before shipping it at #ship! 🚢 🎨 Today I implemented to it some changes and decided to leave it as a standard canvas without other things like a Navbar :css: . This will also apply to other workshops :hack-club: where there's not a lot of room for extra things, but on the fully customizable ones I'll add a lot of awesome :cooll-dino: things! 💻 Today as well I learned more about Zotero, an app for managing bibliography on researching! This will be so useful for my Biology projects and research at school! 🦠 🔬 , so this will be on my app list as well. :quad_parrot:
@J_cordz7+I finished the HTML Canvas! I still don't upload my files to GitHub because I don't know how to name the repo :peefest: but I'll think on something soon! And regarding what I said previously that I'll make pixel art, well I find out about Textmode Art! Textmode is a broad term for art made with a monospaced font on a uniform grid, like what ASCII is!
@J_cordz7+Today I continued studying for my Calculus Exam 📝 📖 that I'll have tomorrow, and helped on making Pixel Art at r/place on Reddit with a Hack Club logo :hack-club: , a few México Flags :mexicoparrot: 🇲🇽 , Linux Tux :linux: and Distros:8bit-tux: and a few very cool gaming themed drawings/art🎮! Also I will be trying to keep making more pixel art and upload it in here! 🎨
@J_cordz7+Third 3️⃣ Update of the day 🎉! I will be using club-scraps to share a #scrapbook link without posting on the Slack :slack: ! This is a super cool feature for clubs :hack-club: who have community members that aren’t active here, but want to share their work with everyone! I also did a better design on the :toitle: Procedural Art Workshop! And designed this awesome 🐙 :tw_octopus: Octopus -Turtle 🐢 :tw_turtle: emoji based on Google’s :google: stickers! Here it is: :octo-turtle::octo-turtle::octo-turtle:
@J_cordz7+Today I'm working again on the Procedural Art workshop :toitle: before moving to another one! I'm also going to rice/customize 🌾 my MacBook again! :macintosh-stcicker::macbook-air-space-gray-screen: And also. setup some terminal and CLI tools! :iterm2: I'm also following MDN Web Docs on Front End Web Development! And here's an image of my first scrapbook post, now turned into a emoji using #emojibot :stickers: ! Lastly tomorrow I have Biology as I said yesterday! So I'm going to be sharing more cool images of tissues on the microscope! 🔬 🧪 :labtocat:
@J_cordz7+Today I'm learning how to make a graph view like in Obsidian! :obsidian-md:, this is for my bit left but not abandoned digital garden project 🌱 , also I'm working on the Generative Art workshop! :toitle: This is so amazing, I'm still learning how to make different patterns but this is very fun to try! I would like to implement AI to this on a project, but to do that I'll have to finish other things first!
@pranav0Generative art!! We ran the hack.af/turtles workshop in our hack club today and it was super fun for everyone!
@heyrajan0moved away from VQGAN+CLIP and tried some diff neural networks for generative art!
@ZaynB0Workshops Challenge Day 1: Splatter Paint
Hey all! I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could do one Hack Club workshop everyday during the month of February to help me learn HTML/CSS/JS. Obviously the fact that today is February 2nd means I've already failed but who cares! Right now my homepage looks pretty bad, something I hope to fix by the end of this challenge. If you want to follow me on my journey, check out #blue-eyes-white-dragon (my channel) and github.com/BaizaOP/hc-workshops where I am putting all of the workshops for this challenge!

@Ishan0Today was such an insane day omg omg

I visited the famous Seattle Space Needle which was surprisingly built in the 1960s. Also they had very cool glass art
Idk why the italics are still on dammit slack mobile but today I also played the ukulele a bit:eggsdee:I don’t actually know how to play it so I was just plucking strings in a pattern like on zephyr:ukulele-ishan:I also configured my new Mac so now it has a perfectly configured terminal and a custom Firefox theme and a lot of other essential utils and apps and I did my history homework on it
Oh and I also went to beechers which has epic Mac and Cheese (the worlds best apparently) and lasagna.
